I will but they may be taken down as it is a Keystone camper, not a Forest River.

Nope, not at all. SOBs (some other brand) are welcome!

I doubt it, members who have switched to another brand are encouraged to remain, so throw them up.

Thanks...we love our FR Sandpiper, but it's time to move on with our son turning 16 and won't be with us much longer unfortunately.

Ok, when it arrives, I will. It is a Montana 3790RD Legacy Package.

No one has said anything to me ~~ yet.
My Cougar's picture is in my profile. I tried to get it in my signature but it has not shown up after 2 attempts. We had actually decided on a Rockwood 5er until we accidently hit the Cougar 303RLS. A 35' 5er built for two. Yes, the sofa makes into a bed but unlikely that will ever be used. We figure to have it 2 - 3 years then back to FR for a Class A.
One thing he will miss ~~ all of you! There is a Keystone owners site and it is good. Keystone corporate and employees are not involved there. No company rallies either.

Purchased a camper with one after telling the salesman I didn't want it. In fact got a price reduction because of that. Just upgraded to a Coachman with one. It really has been a great option.

Our 2016 Sandpiper 360PDEK has one. It is in the dining / entertainment slide. There is a bumper mount grill that swings around. Also have the great patio. Perfect couples unit. There is also a drop down TV in outside kitchen. Grill, cold one, TV, sink, heaven on wheels.

Outside Kitchen

We really enjoy having the outside kitchen (seasonal) and have used it quite a bit. We added a small Weber 2 burner grill to the mix.

As promised. Here are a few pics of our new camper that replaced our Sandpiper 365SAQ. It is a Montana 3790RD. We've camped 3 nights already and we love it. However, just as I thought, I missed the outside kitchen. Not so much the outside fridge, as I can carry a small one to sit under awning or carry another cooler, but the sink most of all. My son and a friend stayed on the couches that let out for full beds. We put Intek air mattresses on them and they claim they are very comfortable.





I will not go completely away. I still like this forum very much. I'm still very fond of the 365SAQs and 355QBQs.

Very very nice unit 😊

This model is on our short list when time to upgrade....

Love the rear den setup - some are elevated and some are not (Silverback)

It will be a toss up between this or a rear kitchen model when the day comes

very nice unit, we have that and the front living room on our short list when we upgrade to the 5'er. I rep from them told us that this model may come out with an outside kitchen next year, and I really want the outside kitchen again on the new one

Great rig! Would have done that but bought the Cougar 5er instead as my F250 could not handle the Montana!

Have never lit the inside stove since PDI. Use outside kitchen rain or shine. I did buy a Kamp Chef stove with oven cheap at garage sale, which to bake in oven. Works great plug in to propane where grill does.

When we started looking for a new camper I was surprised to see outside kitchen centers. I told my husband a woman must have come up with the idea. I would not camp without one now, especially with kids. Its great not to have to run into camper for drinks and sink use.

There was no such thing when my girls were young. There was never a problem as everyone kept a cooler with soft drinks outside that everyone was welcome too. Today it is only my wife and I and we would never use an outdoor kitchen. We light the grill if there is the desire to cook outside. We only have a 35' 5er with 3 slides and that room is more valuable to us on the inside.

I am actually considering no OK on the next one. Never figured I would say that... I wanted metal sides, rear living with plenty setting room for indoor entertainment, some counter space, no kitchen slide, etc. I really the the extra fridge that works, I will have to get plan B on that.
